I considered several crops and love the effect the 'cape' had on the overall image, and wanted to include as much of it as possible. The piece on the top that is missing was my mistake in framing due to her erratic movements. I was shooting with a Nikkor 70-200 lens @ 200mm with a 2x converter and she filled the frame. I appreciate your input and you might be 100 % correct.The last one is my favorite because of the mix of blurred and stopped motion, both feet being off the ground, the gorgeous light and body position.
I wonder if you considered cropping a little at the top. As it is, it looks like a mistake that you clipped the top of the fabric, whereas with more of a crop it would appear intentional to my eye.
